Sherry Knight, my friend from Dimension 11 writes some advice for those thinking of moving up and taking a leadership role. She references Saskatchewan but the message may be applied you no matter where you live.
There are some things to consider when you are looking for your own future success. One of the most important is to recognize your own strengths and those areas where you want to be better than you already are. Sometimes when things go wrong you need to remind yourself that challenges can be fixed and you can fix the problem if you have the skills or you can find someone who can.
Success is in your hands:
Know you can do it, do everything you can to make yourself a valuable part of your organization. Success is in your hands.
